When your buddies talk about living ‘off the grid’ do they usually mean ANYTHING this extreme?
These guys live hundreds of miles from anyone. They see their family once a month.
They carry their guns everywhere — because they’re surrounded by bears.
David, Romey, and their 13-year-old son, Sky, are the only people living on their 250-mile stretch of the Nowitna River.

…But it’s not all weed and board games: the closest hospital is hours away, and the family have had run-ins with falling trees, thin ice and wild animals on more than one occasion.
On David and Romey’s first ever night at the cabin, their supplies were raided by a bear, and the creatures have been a constant threat ever since.
Soon after, Romey was forced to shoot one whilst David was off fetching more essentials.
She said: “Being by myself, I had to skin it, tan the hide and deal with the meat, which took a whole day”.
Do they ever contact the outdoor world? Sure.
They can hook up power if they want to — and their boy plays GTA from time to time.
They go to town for supplies or medicine. (200 miles away)
They work from time to time in a local gold mine.
And once a year, they take a month to visit family in Alabama.
These guys take off the grid living pretty seriously. How seriously? If his wife ever gets an internet connection, he’ll leave her.
